Harry's journey took him through tumultuous times. So has yours. You have witnessed the loss of your paternal grandparents, the tragedies of Sept. 11, global conflict, and natural disasters. In this country, you have seen a historic presidency, amazing changes in technology, harsh economic times, and dysfunction in our government. Overseas, you have seen revolutions in the Arab world. In that context, you have developed a zeal for social justice, as well as skepticism about the ability of our generation to get things done. Perhaps you and your friends, with support from some sympathetic teachers, can restore order to our world as Harry did for his. But in our world, social change rarely comes as quickly or definitively as in the Harry Potter books. As Harry and his friends learned, determining who is a hero or villain can be difficult.
